How to Destroy Angels EP
Critical Mass
Label: The Null Corporation

by Spencer Kornhaber

Trent Reznor's dark symphonies of clank succeed when their bleakness is broken by moments of humanity or hilarity, both of which come from the Nine Inch Nails mastermind's serrated scream. But when Reznor's haunted-spaceship beats combine with the seductive coo of former West Indian Girl vocalist Mariqueen Mandig (his wife) on the trio's debut EP, the results too often suggest a plodding, Matrix-style soundtrack. Funk percussion and vocoder trickery enliven "Fur Lined," though, while "BBB" and "Parasite" charm with Reznor's old perverse swagger and ugly hiss.
